Drake has the most streamed song of 2018 on literally every platform

Headlines 07/12/2018

It was the year that cemented rap and hip-hop's dominance across the music charts, but one Chicago artist has proved fairest of them all.

On Tuesday, Apple Music and Spotify released their 'Best of 2018', with both streaming services acknowledging Drake's smash 'God's Plan' as the number one most listened to track.

Six60's incredible year was recognised with three songs in the top 30 most streamed tracks of the year on Apple Music.

Their latest EP finished second to Ed Sheeran on the album charts - who also took out the top spot last year - with the local heroes out-streaming Drake and Post Malone.

Malone has proved a fan favourite however, with the 23-year-old nabbing two top 10 spots, and four of the top 20 most-streamed tracks in New Zealand.

On Spotify, Kiwis preferred his 'Beerbongs & Bentleys' to Drake's 'Scorpion', and the 'Fall Apart' singer took out their most-streamed album of the year in New Zealand.
